Welsh Liberal Democrats have agreed to try to revive plans for a coalition assembly government with Plaid Cymru and the Conservatives.

It comes days after the “rainbow alliance” collapsed when the party executive failed to back the plans.

    Ming won’t be happy.

  • Any evidence at all for that assertion? No?

    We are a Federal Party. Ming is Leader of the Federal Party and a member of the Scottish Party. I believe that he will rightly consider any decision on coalititon partners in the Welsh Assembly is a matter for the Welsh Party.

    It’s a testament to the fact that we are Liberal DEMOCRATS that we trust our members though Conference to have such a significant influence on these decisions

    This whole “debate” isn’t doing the Welsh Lib Dems much good, is it?

    A right pigs breakfast of a situation. If a car was driven as erraticly as the Welsh Lib Dems the police would be stopping it to breathalyse the driver.
